About 315 Restaurant & Wine Bar
Welcome to 315 Restaurant & Wine Bar, chef-owned and operated for more than two decades. We are dedicated to serving both modern and contemporary French cuisine inspired by seasonal local ingredients. We believe this lends a unique approach to this time-honored cuisine. With a grassroots initiative, almost every dish is prepared from scratch using exceptional care in the procurement of every ingredient. In this way, we pay respect to the community by finding new ways to support Santa Fe’s unique culture of food and art. French food is much more than the classic dishes we all have learned to know and love. It is a philosophy within its composition and a discipline in its technique. Using carefully selected ingredients, we look for ways to enhance a dish rather than overwhelm it. This is where the dance begins between the food and the wine.

315 Restaurant & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
It was our first time to visit the restaurant, which is amazing considering that they have been in business for more than 22 years. That in itself says something about the restaurant. Santa Fe is an extremely competitive restaurant market. Several long established places have gone out of business during the five years that my wife and I have lived in Santa Fe.
That being said, let me conclude by confirming that the food, service and ambiance were exceptional. It's only open in the evenings and reservations are recommended.
My lady (from New Hampshire) loved the oysters. Presentation and price outstanding, as was my Roclette. They put us at a small table for two initially, but moved us (unasked) to a much nicer and larger corner table when they had a cancellation. Servers were very friendly and didn't rush us. Overall a wonderful dining experience.
We regularly come here--love the ambience and the high quality ingredients and preparation. Traditional French bistro fare, with many specials every night. The warm escarole salad with lentils and goat cheese fondue was really exceptional--great taste and consistency. The scallops and shrimp kebab with hunter sauce was also exceptional, as was the poached pear dessert. The beef wellington had wonderful flavor, but the dough was not crisp--think it would be better if it had been made as an individual portion. Overall, one of our favorite places in Santa Fe. The chef takes his work seriously and treats the food with respect.
Five stars plus! Not only is the food presentation beautiful but the taste is incredible. We picked this restaurant due to online recommendation and ate there 2 out of 3 nights while vacationing in Santa Fe; the third night we went by for dessert & after dinner drinks. Owner/chef Louis was "out and about" and was charming, gracious, and knowledgeable about any topic. Our server, Kim, was outstanding, never rushing us but always nearby if we needed her.
Looking for great food, fun place with friends, AND unbelievable value? 315Bistro is your place for all the above. Tuesday is half bottle wine night. Find a great wine that you would never think to order and get it for half price Tuesday night. Love oysters. Look no further. $1.50 oysters from 5-7pm. I love this place.
Somewhat expensive but a comfy small bar with great happy hour--oysters. You can stay at bar for dinner if you wish. Happy hour and dinner $100 each. Good parking across street which is a plus in SFe. Bartenders efficient and friendly. Food and wine very good. I'll go back.
This is a great little restaurant! They dining room is very small but nice ambience and fantastic food. There is a large wine bar that serves small plates so we will definitely be trying that out soon. My husband had cassoulet which was outstanding, and I had chicken cordon bleu also great. The showstopper was the chocolate pot de creme. The chocolate was first quality and it's an amazing dessert--would go back just for that. We had made reservations which are probably a must as the dining room is quite small.
Such a enjoyable experience! We had a quiet table in a cozy nook that felt very private. We were lucky to be there on one of the half-priced wine nights, and ordered two excellent half bottles, tailored to our various courses. Our starter was a delicious foie gras pate, followed by a crispy calamari salad and a plate of large, juicy mussels in a tasty white wine sauce. The flourless chocolate cake waa the perfect ending.
Having lived in France, will return to better sample the full French-cuisine menu as Restaurant Week selection was only adequate... but I do lament Santa Fe's becoming so uncomfortably virtual chic, where a legitimate French neighborhood bistro—with creative, fresh, affordable fare and daily specials on a sidewalk chalkboard—could thrive. We are now "hotel & spa, restaurant & wine bar" to zap the affluent, instead of providing a local eatery more true in character to fast-disappearing Santa Fe, inviting to residents and visitors alike.
The restaurant was good but we waited a long time to order a drink. It was the first night of restaurant week in Santa Fe but I would have expected them to be adequately staffed.
They did not have the wine we wanted. It is super annoying when a restaurant has a wine on their list that they do not have once you have ordered.
Vacationing with friends, found restaurant on-line via ratings, visiting Santa Fe on vacation, rented VRBO (fabulous experience BTW!), not in season for Santa Fe...but in-season for us! Found 315 cozy, friendly, superb service, and the food absolutely perfect (clean plate club for a bunch of foodies). We ordered Sea Bass, Duck, Bouillabaisse, and Veal Schnitzel. This is worth a return visit...
This is a great place for a pair or smaller groups. Loved the sea bass and was impressed with the variety of offerings on the menu and special board. I appreciated the gluten free labeling and the waiter's prompt willingness to check on the gf status of one of the specials. I will return.
The food here is good, sometimes very good. The portions are really inconsistent. A veal schnitzel dish was piled up such that it needed a bigger plate while the mussel entree was small. The soup appetizer was quite generous. The food needs a little more attention to plating and presentation. It was a bit haphazrd (fries piled on top of the mussels seemed careless). The servers are excellent and the timing very good. The desserts also quite tasty and a very normal portion size. Some of the dishes (chocolate torte, schnitzel, squash soup) were excellent in flavor and worth going back for. Others (salmon entree, mussels) were simply good but unremarkable. We'd go back but with so many other options in Santa Fe, this won't be at the very top of the list for awhile.
After being a regular for the past 10 years, I was frankly disappointed. The Prix Fixe price was too high for the offering. Appetizers completely under value - two oysters and two shrimp and small unexciting salads. The steak frites was excellent as always - in fact better than usual, a very tender piece of steak. The grouper was tasty, but a very small portion padded with potatoes. The veal schnitzel, very small...presentation uninspired...mashed potatoes boring.
Desserts very good. BUt when you add it all up, it was overpriced.
Also one of my dishes (the schnitzel coating, or maybe added to the honey on the cheese plate??) were pine nuts. I suffer from Pine Nut Syndrome (Google it!) that is manifest by an intense metallogeusia (metallic taste) that lasts more than two weeks after eating pine nuts. Had I known pine nuts were included somewhere I would have avoided them.
My wife andI usually sit at the bar to better take advantage of bartenders that know their business and the terrific bar menu. The latter is one of the best dining bargains in Santa Fe.
We had a small family get-together the other night and opted to sit in one of the regular dining rooms. 315 did not disappoint. Excellent bistro fare, outstanding wine list and attentive, but not overbearing servers. The owner/executive chef, Louis Moscow, was also there to offer great suggestions of of the wine list.
One of our very favorite restaurants in Santa Fe.
This is a beautiful little restaurant and the service was fabulous. The food, however, was not the upscale quality I expected. The sea bass should have been grilled or prepared in a way that added to the wonderful texture and taste of this fish. The shrimp and scallops were not quite done, but that was tolerable...the rice mixture they were served on was too tart and didn't combine well with the seafood. For dessert...the pear tart was smothered in cloves and nutmeg, which totally obscured the delicate pears. We made the reservation on Open Table, which did not mention this was a prix fixe menu @ $65 per person. We paid a lot of money for a ho-hum meal. The setting is beautiful though and the service was awesome.
I went on Christmas Day and had an overall excellent meal. I thought the main course was rather skimpy, given what I was paying, but everything was top quality and well prepared. They have a diverse wine selection by the glass (not like some restaurants that offer 6 versions of Chardonnay!), and the dessert beverage selection is also very good.
